Oireachtas Cross Party Group on Alcohol Misuse briefing

Briefing by the Oireachtas Cross Party Group on Alcohol Misuse on the rarely discussed link between alcohol and breast cancer.

One standard drink a day is associated with a 9% risk increase, while drinking 3 to 6 standard drinks a day increases the risk by 41%.

Many women who are recovering from breast cancer only become aware of the link through their recovery programme.
